No Title 2047

Supplement to “Energy Efficiency”

The recent stimulus bill (the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) made some significant changes to the energy-efficiency tax credits. The highlights are:

• The tax credits that were previously effective for 2009 have been extended to 2010.

• The tax credit has been raised from 10% to 30%.

• The tax credits that were for a specific dollar amount have been converted to 30% of the cost.

• The maximum credit has been raised from $500 to $1,500 for the two years (2009-2010). However, some improvements such as geothermal heat pumps, solar water heaters, and solar water heaters and solar panels are not subject to the $1,500 maximum.

• The $200 cap on windows has been removed.
